How's that Gary Moore and whoever else show that you have? It had two other names, but I don't remember the two. And there was also a Yardbirds show from '69. Was this just some Led Zeppelin show while they were still being called "The New Yardbirds" by some people?

Oh my .


I'd like to talk about literature. I'm actually thinking of PM'ing a mod to make an only literature/books thread in The Pit. But The Pit would probably explode if we did that.

So, favorite/least favorite books?

My favorite book is Fight Club, as is Chuck Palahniuk my favorite author. The guy is brilliant.

Also, I recently attempted to read Heart of Darkness, since I've heard good things (and it's what Apocalypse Now was based on) and I have to say it was MIND NUMBINGLY boring. I don't even want to talk about it.
#182
I have a myriad of favorite books, but my top three are probably The Stand by Stephen King, Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut, and No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy.

What a coincidence, I am reading Heart of Darkness now as well. I, however, really enjoy it. It isn't your normal, jump out and grab you with an interesting story. It is more a psychological work, one that plunges into the depths of the human mind and examines the dark corners of it. I find it to be a interesting, yet challenging read.

Marlow kept telling us about how great of a character this Kurtz fellow is, but he isn't introduced for a long time. I wished I had read more, since I didn't even make it to where Kurtz was introduced. The first 75 pages was just pointless drivel about the countryside and ivory. I figured it wasn't worth my time and dead brain cells.

Stephen King used to be once of my favorite authors. I'm into more now. Right now I'm reading The Dark Tower V, which is just such a great series. My favorite King book is probably Thinner. Scratch that, it's 1408.

1408 is just such a great psychological horror, it's the only story I've ever read to have actually frightened me. It scared the crap out of me! Everyone should read it.

I have Slaughterhouse Five on reserve at the library, so it's up next, along with The Great Gatsby, which I've heard mixed opinions about.
#184
I'm kinda the same way with Stephen King. He was probably the first author I really got into and since then, I have kind of moved on. I still read his new books but I wouldn't call him one of my favorite authors anymore. I think he is more of a introductory author, like AC/DC is an introductory classic rock band. He starts you off with a solid base and then you move on from there.

I think I've said before that I dislike Gatsby. I don't think its the classic that everyone makes it out to be. Sure, the story is interesting. But the book is rife with unneeded symbols and is downright boring in spots. It definitely should be read though, just to see what you think about it.

I would've liked to have read it before I saw the movie, but it's too late now. Excellent movie, however. Any other McCarthy recommendations that are as quality as "No Country..."?

I'm (STILL) reading Joseph Wambaugh's "The Onion Field". It's a lot like "In Cold Blood".

^The Road is very good, but nothing like No Country for Old Men. The Border Trilogy (consisting of All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing, and Cities of the Plain) is more similar to NCFOM.

I'm a bit on the fence with Stephen King. I read a bunch of his books back in middle school, and some were very good, while others were just alright. For instance, The Shining was great, as was Pet Sematary, Thinner was good, and looking back on Cujo, I originally liked it, but now I think it could have been better from what I remember. That being said, I recently read The Mist (had to do it before the movie- which I still haven't seen -came out), which I liked a lot, and The Green Mile, which I can conclude is one of the best books I have ever read. A bunch of his short stories/novellas are good too- especially Children of the Corn and Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.

As for The Great Gatsby, I did not like that book either, and agree that it is not the classic everyone says it is.

I just finished 1984 last week and thought that was great, and now I'm re-reading A Clockwork Orange, which I loved the first time I read it.

I just saw that movie not too long ago, it was entertaining. I have the Everything's Eventual book with that story in it, so one of these days I'll get around to reading that.

King definitely has his weaker books, Bag of Bones, The Colorado Kid, Eyes of the Dragon, and Rose Matter come to mind. But overall, much of his work is strong.

I don't have time for this like I used to. Plus to be honest, all we ever talk about is the same old shit anyway, and I think some people are scared to have conversations with me, so I tend to just not post anymore in case I get into an argument and get banned again. Im pretty sure next time its for good.

Slaughterhouse Five is a phenomenal book, but I think it overshadows some of Vonnegut's other work (Breakfast of Champions, Mother Night, and Jailbird), which is potentially better.

My favorite book is Animal Farm... before you jump to conclusions, it was even before I liked Floyd! A Lesson Before Dying and Brave New World come to mind, also.

As for Heart Of Darkness, I'm a senior in High School and my AP English class just finished it. I have a lot of respect for Conrad, he's phenomenal with words (and English isn't his first language!), but it was the most tedious book I've ever read. It seems way overly complicated to me, but it's full of good ideas and points. I guess it's a good idea that's just boring for me. The good thing is that with that book done, everything else we do in AP will be easy!

I've only read one Vonnegut book- Cat's Cradle. In my Freshman English class we did a lot of silent reading, if we didn't have a book the teacher would just hand us something to read. He gave me Cat's Cradle. It was at the same time we read Animal Farm. My Dad kept going on and on about how there was a reason he gave me Cat's Cradle and that he wanted me to compare them or something. I just kept telling my Dad "He just handed me a book at random... you've never read Cat's Cradle or you'd understand that this was NOT his intention!". I couldn't stand it. Of course I was a Freshman, and don't really remember much of the book except for the repeated mentioning of Hoosiers and the favorite insult being "pissant". Maybe I need to give it another shot, but it's not too high on my list of books to read right now...
